The Path to Innovation: Modernization Starts with Integration
Many companies today are prioritizing modernization of application landscapes to reap the benefits of cloud-native applications, such as agility, flexibility, and resiliency. Benefits of modernization include reduced total cost of ownership and improved productivity by leveraging the latest technologies to better support business demands.
Additionally, the pressure to innovate and deliver better outcomes for the business and experiences for customers drives organizations to undertake digital transformation initiatives. Successful digital transformation enables a company to not just react to change but also to anticipate what’s coming – and to be prepared for it. A key imperative of an organization’s transformation journey is upgrading its technology landscape to take advantage of the latest innovations, such as artificial intelligence (AI).
Yet, the adoption of new technology leads to highly distributed system landscapes with scattered business information, lacking the ability for real-time insights and actions. Business information today comes from everywhere: from departments like finance, manufacturing, and customer service to suppliers, partners, and broader business networks. This information is captured and stored in a variety of systems, on premises and in the cloud. When these systems aren’t properly integrated and managed, that data can’t easily be shared between them, leading to a lack of visibility and disjointed end-to-end business processes that span across and outside an enterprise. Collaborating with partners can be challenging if there is no integration platform in place to facilitate the exchange of data between systems.
To address these challenges, organizations turn to adopting a modern integration platform. Today’s modern integration solution is a cloud-based integration platform as a service (iPaaS) designed to solve a broad range of integration challenges (for example, business-to-business, application-to-application, and business-togovernment integrations, and the streamlining and standardization of integration activities). This platform makes it easier to automate processes and share data across the business and across multiple organizations.
